Introduction to Groundwater and Watershed Hydrology
November 9-10, 2015
Buehler Alumni Center, University of California, Davis
Groundwater Resources Association of California
University of California Cooperative Extension Groundwater Hydrology Program
Understanding the fundamental principles of groundwater and watersheds and how we monitor, assess, and sustainably manage these resources under climate change and variability is critical and integral to many water-related programs. Whether at the local, state, and federal level, these programs are designed for sustainable development and protection of water resources in California among competing users. Increasingly, professionals, decision makers, executives, and employees of diverse background and in a wide variety of private, non-profit, and government responsibilities at the local, state, and federal level are directly or indirectly involved in the sustainable management and assessment of groundwater and surface water, including the implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act through groundwater sustainability agencies and plans, source water assessments, urban water management plans, and integrated regional water management plans. Yet, many participants find themselves lacking the multidisciplinary background, expertise, or means to meet the technical and regulatory challenges related to groundwater, water and drinking water resources management. The amount of technical information available often seems overwhelming.
